Ukrainian media - the official lie
As recently as Wednesday, several Ukrainian publications, referring now to each other, now to certain eyewitnesses, now to “unnamed sources” in the press service of the DPR, came out with material, the very meaning of which gives low-grade directing. Electronic resources "UaReview", "Economic news", “Espresso TV” and other UkroSMIs “shared” the material that Vyacheslav Ponomarev, people's mayor of Slavyansk, allegedly took the initiative to rename the city he headed to Putin, Donetsk - Putin, Lugansk - Putingrad, Gorlovka - Vladimir Vladimiridimirovka. Of course, this enchanting material quite normally looked normal in some liberal satirical herald, but when an article under a serious sauce is presented by political and economic publications, it’s time to ask the question, who is this nonsense meant for? Are there really people who took it seriously with their eyebrows knocked down ... Or did someone in ukroSMI be “inspired” by the presence of Putin's Avenue in Grozny?
After the text was taken away on social networks, it became clear that the “news” about Putin's and Vladimirovodynamirovka is taken seriously by at least hundreds of citizens of both Ukraine and, incidentally, Russia.
Here are a few comments.news»From social networks:
In fairness, it should be noted that most of the comments were reduced to calling the author of this “news” “to kill one's head against the wall” if he is unable to show the video version of this very “top-secret” press conference Vyacheslav Ponomarev, at which the people's mayor of Slavyansk allegedly outlined the essence of his initiative. The author of the "news", apparently, did not go on suicide, although, for obvious reasons, he did not submit a video version ...
The second example. Editions "South Ukrainian News", "Today.ua" and a number of other Ukrainian resources after the Ukrainian military raid aviation and after a missile attack on the administration building, they went to Lugansk in news sections with information that they allegedly shot not from the air, but from the ground. The RSA attacked, they say, the "separatist terrorists" themselves, out of ignorance, the natural "curvature" of their hands ...
At the same time, as it has now become fashionable in UkroSMI, they reported on some witnesses who saw with their own eyes how someone from the “militants” allegedly fired from a MANPADS on the plane, and the rocket “turned” not on the aircraft’s engines, but on the air conditioner on RSA building, causing damage to the building and resulting in casualties. How has this very “rocket” not yet hit the working engine of a passenger car standing next to it or an extinguished cigarette in the nearest urn? .. There is a mystery, so a mystery ...
Further, the News-N edition decided to go further, on the comment pages of which even the name of an eyewitness pops up and part-time as a “military expert”. If it were not a tragic event, it would be possible to laugh for a long time, for the name of the “expert eyewitness” Ivanov ... It is this Ivanov who concludes:
Another “expert” in the same edition (a certain “PS” - pravosek? ..) writes:
Experts, as can be seen, have the strongest knowledge about the operating modes of the infrared homing head of MANPADS, as well as the deepest conviction that the range of thermal radiation of an air conditioner coincides with the range of thermal radiation of an aircraft engine. At the same time, “experts” do not comment on why a “inept” shot from MANPADS also mowed down half of the public garden located near the building of the Lugansk Regional State Administration.
But the same "Ivanov" and "PS", as it turned out, are even more "eyewitnesses" than "experts". Anyone who wished, managed to compare the frames of the RSA building before the raid on ukroVVS and after the raid. The frames say simply: there was no air conditioner at the place of destruction ...
The third example. "UkroNet" shook the information that it was "separatist militants" (well, that is, the militia of Donbass) does not allow civilians to leave the city. Allegedly, the militia are trying to save their lives. This “version” was picked up by some resources in Russia. For example, in the microblog Russian World a whole series of notes about the following appears:
Even a photo is attached.
Here is just the same photo two days before Twitter had time to appear on the pages of the media forum of the agency France Press
Also with the indication of the authorship of the picture and the text explaining what exactly is captured in the photo. Text translation:
That is, an urgent evacuation of someone clearly wanted to turn into a "cover the children's bodies." The essence of this process is clear, because in this way and only this way one can not only stir up the “righteous” anger of the West, but also make the other citizens of Ukraine hate the residents of Lugansk and Donetsk. The West is very keen on accepting just such “information” from the Ukrainian (and not only, by the way, Ukrainian) media, social networks, blogs, and either refuses any of its refutations, or calls it “Russian propaganda.”
On top of that, I would like to present a video clip in which journalist Anatoly Shary examines another “sensation” from UkroSMI and makes certain conclusions.
By the way, the article "Shary Anatoly Anatolyevich" in Wikipedia is proposed for deletion with the wording "does not meet the criteria of significance." Apparently, if Shary showed a different position, then for Wikipedia the significance would have been more obvious ...
